I spent two nights at the American Inn while I was in town for a tennis tournament. This hotel is a typical 2-star hotel. The room is okay for one person, but might be a little cramped for more than 2 people. The furniture was newer, but the carpet shows some age. The bed was very comfortable, and the room... More

My mom and I have been staying at The American Inn for 12 1/2 years. The hotel has undergone some beautiful renovations. The beds are comfy, shower hot, internet fast and tons of tv channels. The breakfast included is a nice touch. The hotel is within walking distance of the metro and tons of great restaurants. The management and staff... More

Great place to stay close to NIH and Naval Hospital. Hotel rooms are quiet. Close to metro to go into DC. Staff are very helpful. The only things I wish they had is a fitness center and a little more choices on breakfast. Wish you could get scrambled eggs or an egg burrito in the morning. Nice to have a... More

You'll be hard pressed to find a place in the $200-range in Bethesda, so I found this to be a good value for the money. You can see the wear-and-tear on the bones of the place but they have obviously made updates to furniture, bedding, paint, wallpaper, etc. It's clean and the staff was always pleasant. Free parking & continental... More

A complete sub-standard rip off. The lifts (elevators) stink, It is for the first time that I have experienced FROZEN boiled (?) eggs......the term in itself indicates the low quality. No room service, absent management , completely unrecetpive staff and a website that does not allow for comments (?). I am sure that the reviews that indicate a positive experience... More

This is my third time staying and second time reviewing (see my entry from Apr 23, 2009) this hotel. Overall, my experience was similar to my previous stays and the hotel met my needs. My customer service experience was ok, but it seemed to be lacking from my previous visits. The front desk attendant was not as friendly as before,... More

I live right across the street and the snow took out most of our power and the heat so we spent a night here. $29 for the room!!! They had great, updated decor. 15 ft or so vaulted ceilings. It looked more like a quaint upstairs guest room in a bed and breakfast than a hotel room. Everything was very... More

We spent much time in Bethesda for my wounded soldier-son's treatment at Bethesda National Naval hospital. The American Inn of Bethesda is conveniently located near both NNMC and the NIH. The American Inn offers a much better rate than the Doubletree (located right next door) and its price includes free parking and a wonderful continental breakfast. When the Navy Lodge... More

A v-good value in DC. We stayed one night, the room was small but the facility was clean and the staff friendly. Convenient for the Strathmore Music Center.
